Home Made Mascara

 

mascara1

Never heard of it before and of course, so used to buying mascara from a cosmetic retail store that it never entered my head that I could make it myself. I have known that modern mascaras are quite toxic but of course vanity prevailed.

I was thumbing through my favorite website of Dr Axe and I came upon this recipe for mascara. I have not tried it yet but will start on it tomorrow,  I have all the ingredients except black mineral powder, {if you click on the word it will take you to amazon where you can purchase it} bentonite clay and beeswax.
